Environmental Solutions Group (ESG) provides premier, innovative solutions that process, transport, and transforms organic waste into sustainable resources that benefit our customers and communities.
With the intensified global focus on environmental preservation and green initiatives, we have aligned our product and service solutions to address the Triple Bottom Line (TBL) needs of customers who deal with organic waste.
TBL measures the success of a business using a combination of social, economic, and environmental criteria, described as the three pillars of TBL, People, Performance, and Planet. TBL has caught the attention of municipalities and other organizations in the solid waste and recycling industry that have adopted it as a way of measuring their success in terms of sustainability.
A Holistic Approach to Organic Waste Management
Whether you’re responsible for managing organic waste collection and disposal needs for a municipality of 5,000, a rural province of 50,000 or a metropolis of 5 million, ESG offers solutions to address your entire organic waste stream to save you money by analyzing every aspect of your approach to organics—planning, collection, transportation, handling and disposal.
Our integrated program involves a holistic approach to problem solving, in which ESG representatives work directly with customers to identify their TBL goals and then help them choose the products and processes best designed to achieve those goals for waste stream management. Processes can involve refining the waste stream at the point of collection or developing recycling capabilities that can generate revenue through the sale of baled recyclables. In waste-to-energy applications, this may include applying unique and proprietary anaerobic digestion systems, offered in concert with alliance partners, to use organic waste to generate compressed natural gas for CNG-fueled refuse collection vehicles.
Heil PT 1000 (High-Performance Rear Loader)
The perfect choice for organics collection, the PT 1000 can be equipped with optional organics features which include: an extended hopper sill, a hopper drain with shut-off valve, extended tailgate seal, body access door seal, an extended body front head plate, and sumps. The PT 1000 has an outstanding payload with a 3-cubic yard hopper and the fastest cycle time in its class to maximize time on daily collection routes. It can be equipped with a variety of container handling devices to suit the needs of organics collection. The one-piece body sidewall is easier to wash and maintain, resists rust and corrosion, and is competitively priced for adding organics collection to your fleet.
DuraPack 4060 (Split-Body Rear Loader)
Two different compartments enable collection of trash and organics. Each compartment has its own dedicated portion of the hydraulic system, enabling different compaction rates to be set by the operator for each compartment. The DuraPack 4060 Split Body Rear Loader was specifically designed to address customer needs for a single collection vehicle that can efficiently haul multiple commodities.
Organics Collection Rapid Rail
Heil is now adding an Automated Organics Collection Side Loader to our unit portfolio. The Organics Collection Rapid Rail. The Rapid Rail is equipped to be the optimal ASL to collect organics in both the Residential and Commercial Market. The liquid tight tailgate seal, floor mounted sealed bearing packer design, and now with optional reduced packer sweep functionality of the packer paddle make the Rapid Rail the high lift capacity, low compaction automated solution for organics collection. Available only in a dumping model to ensure optimal payload removal of the “solid organics” with an optional 3" hopper drain valve that will allow for liquid removal at specified locations.
The Curotto-Can Commercial Gripper
Specially designed to lift heavy carts, such as those filled with green or food waste, the Curotto-Can Commercial Gripper enables a commercial front loader to grab, lift, and empty 32 to 96-gallon wheeled carts using either outside-or inside-the-cab controls. Eliminates the need for a second truck to pick up wheeled carts, which minimizes route duplication and reduces operating cost.
Bayne Premium Lift Systems
Bayne’s cart lifting capabilities provide a great opportunity to reduce your trash handling cycle times while also reducing workplace injuries. As a leading supplier of cart tippers for the waste industry, Bayne has been manufacturing cart tippers and lifters for over 40 years.

The Vert-I-Pack alleviates the need for unsightly containers that draw scavengers and vermin. Organic waste stays inside the unit and is stored in an ozone-rich atmosphere (with optional ozone device) to minimize odors and insects. The RJ-250SC and the VIP are excellent compactors for the collection and storage of organic waste.
SMARTFERM™ Anaerobic Digestion
In partnership with Zero Waste Energy, ESG provides an environmentally friendly alternative to landfill disposal for organics. ESG brands can provide assistance with a state-of-the-art dry anaerobic digestion system for organic waste processing. SMARTFERM anaerobic digester offers a sub-grade percolate tank, which significantly reduces percolate and biogas process piping runs as well as the size of motors and fans to move them. The sub-grade percolate tank also greatly enhances the overall thermal efficiency of the process. The SMARTFERM design is offered on two platforms: a shop-fabricated steel digester system or as a cast-in-place concrete digester system.
All SMARTFERM systems can be designed to include biogas-processing technology for combined heat and power (CHP) generation for onsite use and export as well as compressed natural gas (CNG) for use to fuel waste transport vehicles. In addition, in-vessel composting (IVC) options can provide partial or complete sanitizing of compost for the wholesale or retail market.
